This is something I don’t play at work. If something is working, I’m not going to be the one to fault it. If something’s all f’ed up, I’ll be the first in line to say the emperor has no clothes.
That’s the thing in the world of software. It’s not like politics in Washington, but rather — in the long term at least — a very egalitarian environment. The ideas that are good tend to rise to the top. The smokescreens around the bad ideas will eventually get blown away to show reality for what it is.
I just happen to create that breeze from now and then. (No, no fart jokes… too easy)
